UPDATE: The market will return in 2014!
The Northwest Needle Market is a highly targeted, inexpensive, casual, fun, and most importantly, profitable market for needlework distributors, manufacturers and their representatives. Most of our buyers come from the Northwestern states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho. However, we do have shop representation from as far away as Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and even Northern California.
The show is held at the Embassy Suites in Tukwila, Washington. This conveniently located "all-suites" hotel is approximately 15 minutes South of Seattle and 5 minutes from the Seattle/Tacoma airport and Southcenter Shopping Mall. The hotel has wonderful accommodations as well as service. At the NWNM, the front portion of your hotel suite doubles as your booth. This makes setting up and tearing down a breeze! No shuttle busses to get to the exhibition hall, no waiting for your packages to be carried in, and no unions to pay! What you do get is a quiet, comfortable atmosphere to display your products, sell your products and a chance to get to know your customers better.
